Good morning everyone! It is a beautiful Saturday morning so far here in the Chi, and it feels like it's going to be a scorcher later...but it IS August already, so I suppose that's ok.
I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for her Currently linky party:
*Listening: Don't you love it when the house is quiet early in the morning and you can have a moment with your thoughts? I am learning to cherish these now that the summer is winding down and my mind will be filled once again with common core, literacy, and classroom management ideas
*Loving: Coffee and cheese is a big thing in Europe and Latin America (think- cheese pastries, cheese platters, espresso, café de olla, etc.) so lately I have been having my own little slice of Brazil by enjoying my morning coffee with a little piece of cheese :) Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
*Thinking: Yes, it is rapidly approaching and I have approximately 4.5 million things to do to get ready. We are finally being allowed into the building starting this Monday (one week later than I had planned). I will be there everyday sorting through boxes that (hopefully) were sent from my old school and decorating our happy first grade classroom!
*Wanting: I didn't really GO anywhere this summer, just kind of relaxed around here...I want to get a way a little before I get sucked into the school existence/survival mode again. Labor Day weekend is the deadline.
*Needing: A haircut, a pedicure, eyebrow wax, new work outfits! I did start going to the chiropractor again after my facial-gone-stiff neck-episode (as mentioned here), so I hope to get back into that routine. A weekly adjustment and medical massage? Yes, please. Two, please.
What is your personal maintenance/upkeep ritual during the school year? I would love to hear all about it!
